WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
COUNSELLING is a time set aside each week for you to explore difficulties or unease in your life. It is a time to talk about things you may find difficult to discuss with family or friends. In each session we will have 50 minutes together, during which I will not judge or advise you. You will be heard and you will be given support while resolving your issues. By building a therapeutic relationship I believe that you will gain the strength to become the person you want to be, increase your self awareness and move forward in a way that suits you. Counselling may involve looking into your childhood or a past trauma to understand what is happening today. I will support you in untangling those emotions and feelings.
Often individuals choose to have counselling because they are experiencing DIFFICULTIES and DISTRESS in their lives. However, you do not have to be in CRISIS or on the verge of one, before choosing to enter into counselling. You may be experiencing underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with life in general or be seeking balance in your life.
Counselling may also be used for one session (SST-Single Session Therapy) to work on an issue that is affecting you right now. A one off session dedicated to helping you now. This would involve some preparation by the client before the session so as to use your time efficiently and effectively.
